Albany-- There was gunfire in northwest Albany as a convenience store owner fought off an armed robber.
A little after seven o'clock Wednesday night, a man entered the Mini-Mart at 2422 Stuart Avenue, showed a gun and demanded money. That's when store owner Mike Patel pulled out his own gun and fired one shot at the would-be robber.
It scared the crook away. Police found two suspects nearby. They quickly released one but took the other in for questioning. They also released him Wednesday night because of a lack of evidence.
